Christine and Justin Gignac are New York City based artists. In July 2007, they started WantsForSale.com, a site where they sell paintings of things they want, at the cost of the actual item. When a painting is sold the couple takes the money and buys that item. So far they have fulfilled over 60 wants, from "A Slice of Pepperoni Pizza" for $3.00 to "A Gold Watch" for $287.19. They even painted and sold an entire Vegas Vacation, including flights, hotel room, gamblin' money and all-you-can-eat buffets. The project has developed such a following, the last series featuring items from infomercials sold out in under five minutes.
In November 2007, Christine and Justin took the concept one step further and launched NeedsForSale.com. The site follows the same structure as Wants but all the proceeds go to charity. Through the sale of paintings and limited edition prints, Needs For Sale has raised over $7000 for various causes.
